Unfortunately I know of no way to do this.  They simply haven’t been able to finish the sun4u code to properly boot any version of Solaris, and that is necessary to use a 32-bit binary with V8 extensions.  I think they could probably be induced to do so with a corporate sponsorship however.

Subject: Sun4m with V8 extensions


Hi all,


I am running a SPARC Solaris 5.9 qemu to support a licensing server, but the software uses V8 extensions to the 4m instruction set.  As I am using the default machine and cpu for qemu-system-sparc, it doesn’t include those extensions.


My question is what machine/cpu combination should I use to achieve this?
